TH Overview

MOVEMENT TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

The human body is designed to move as a whole and on multiple planes – similar to how athletes train to stay in peak condition.  Remaining abnormally stationary or staying in one plane while training prevents our bodies from maximizing their full potential – in workouts and in daily life.  Movement training utilizes more muscle groups and expends more energy, resulting in highly effective and efficient training sessions. Tone House® challenges individuals to elevate their workouts by consistently incorporating this programming philosophy into each session.

IS THE TRAINING PROGRAM STANDARDIZED OR DOES IT VARY BY COACH?

The program is created by Alonzo Wilson, Founder & Director of Training, and it is standardized, which means it will be consistent wherever and whenever you train.  It changes daily based on the focus (TH 101, Lower Body, Upper Body, Core, Total Body, or Conditioning), and it is designed to evolve and progress as our athletes do to avoid plateaus.

No two programs are exactly alike.  The weekend program is the same on Saturday and Sunday, but it will be entirely different from the previous weekend.  The only constant in each session is The Warm Up, which is arguably the toughest part of class.

All our certified Coaches are excellent and offer a unique approach in their delivery of the program, but the daily message is always consistent in order to maintain the integrity and the quality of the Tone House experience.

CLASS STRUCTURE

TH 101

We’ve overheard it said that the only way to prepare for Tone House is to train at Tone House. Now you can actually do that, with a class designed specifically for athletes who are new to The Turf.

TH 101 offers a great introduction to our workout and movement training philosophy, as well as focused instruction and demonstration on proper technique and strong form that you can carry into any Tone House session. Plus, you’ll get the benefit of joining the team with a group of athletes who are new to The House as well.

  • This class is not limited to, nor is it mandatory for, first-time athletes.
  • Current clients may utilize this session as a refresher course on the fundamentals of Tone House training. If you have previously hit The Turf and/or train regularly here, please note that the pace and programming in this class will be adjusted to accommodate for additional instruction and demos.
  • As a guideline, we recommend attending at least three TH 101 sessions before graduating to our normal training schedule. Every athlete is different, though, and you may transition sooner, or your Coaches’ may advise you to do so.

Look for TH 101 on the schedule here to sign up for this class.

TH Story

Tone House was created by Alonzo Wilson, a former collegiate and professional athlete as well as private trainer in New York City, and current Wilhelmina Fitness Model. In high school, he was introduced to athletic-based extracurricular activities in football, basketball, and track, lettering in all three sports and igniting his passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle. He then played collegiate football at Grand Valley State University, helping the team win two Division II National Championships, and earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Movement Science Education and Professional Instruction before continuing on to play professionally.

The high level of physical and mental training he achieved during his formative years shaped his vision that fitness and exercise should be integrated into everyone’s life. Alonzo also realized that only 10% of his high school class was exposed to challenging conditioning workouts through team sports. Aside from the average Physical Education class that all students were required to attend, the other 90% were not incorporating intense physical activity on a daily basis, a habit that Alonzo felt should be instilled at a young age.

In the midst of his blossoming football career, Alonzo’s mother also became extremely sick with cancer and sadly lost her battle to the disease. Her passing had a profound and lasting impact on him, ultimately changing his career path. Obesity was a contributing factor to her situation, and he began to think of ways he could have helped change the outcome, all of which kept coming back to fitness. This reaffirmed his belief that exercise and a healthier lifestyle would have significantly lowered her risks or prevented the disease from occurring entirely.

His movement training philosophy, innovative workouts, and positive energy have transformed his clients’ bodies as well their lives.Returning to NYC, he accepted a position as trainer for the professional entertainment basketball team, the Harlem Magic Masters, was signed on by the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency, and developed a private training clientele from various demographics (athletes, models, actors, business professionals, etc). His movement training philosophy, innovative workouts, and positive energy have transformed his clients’ bodies as well their lives.

Alonzo felt the public was ready and yearning to take their fitness journey to the next level. His decision to open Tone House stemmed from a desire to fill a void in the industry – allowing the mainstream to experience the extreme in athletic-based training. At Tone House, only fun, adventure, buckets of sweat, and a sense of accomplishment lie ahead.
